Birthday presents and some new things that I made

From my husband I got these 2 beautiful books , Cabbages and Roses and Rachel Ashwell , and my son surprised me with these gorgeous Country Road tea towels with shabby pink and green colors. And the 2 tier with plates I got from my mum and sister. And my daughter in Holland surprised me with a skype visit with my best friend Gerda , primary , highschool , first children , until I left Holland and who I haven't seen for 17 years , so I felt very blessed and spoiled.

and ofcourse these books give me lots of inspiration for miniatures as well, so I made these vintage , shabby chic looking apron and little rug , blanket and they are available in my Etsy , There is also a shabby chic pink blanket in the making !

    Groetjes van Marijke

  2. Dear Frederica,
    Meanwhile, although late, happy birthday :-)
    It seems that it has been celebrated worthily, and you've got great gifts.
    Beautiful all your latest work, as always.
    BTW: we have the same bathroom kit, and it's really fun to see how you decided to decorate it :-)
    Lovely hugs,

  3. A late happy birthday Frederica! Your gifts are fabulous, I suspect those teatowels will never dry a dish :) That little rug looks perfect in the bathroom, what a great idea. The apron is super cute, I totally love the ones you gave me when we met in Auckland, the addition of one of them to my French kitchen adds a lot of charm I think.
